It is worth the climb to top of Orchard Knob to see Missionary Ridge and Chattanooga area. There are some impressive monuments and signage about the Civil War. That being said, the neighborhood is a bit questionable and the top of the knob feels isolated....More

Chattanooga is full of Civil War history. Orchard Knob is a must see if you are touring the other areas of the war history. This is located in the middle of a neighborhood in the city. It's a bit of a shady looking area, so...More

If you're interested in the American Civil War and you're visiting the Chickamauga (GA) battlefield, a visit to Orchard Knob along with Missionary Ridge and Lookout Mountain will give you the necessary perspective for the Battle of Chattanooga that followed.

Lots of historical markers and explanation and a great view of the surrounding skyline; its a great quick stop to take in some history while in Chattanooga. The neighborhood is a bit depressed so lock your car when you hike up the hill.

It is true that it is not in a great area. However, we were there on a week day in the middle of the day and had no issues. It is true that the signage could have been better and it was not kept up...More

You MUST check out Orchard Knob! The monuments are quite impressive and the views from the top are amazing! You can see downtown, Lookout/Signal Mtn, and Missonary Ridge!

Despite having lived in Chattanooga around 30 years this was my first trip to the Orchard Knob portion of the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park. There is no dedicated parking for the park but there is plenty of space on the streets surrounding it....More
